PRECAUTIONS
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE PROCEEDING
* Please keep these precautions in a safe place for future reference.

WARNING
Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of serious injury or even death from electrical shock, short-circuiting, damages, fire or other hazards. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:
• Do not open the instrument or attempt to disassemble the internal parts or modify them in any way. The instrument contains no user-serviceable parts. If it should appear to be malfunctioning, discontinue use immediately and have it inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel. • Do not expose the instrument to rain, use it near water or in damp or wet conditions, or place containers on it containing liquids which might spill into any openings. • If the AC adaptor cord or plug becomes frayed or damaged, or if there is a sudden loss of sound during use of the instrument, or if any unusual smells or smoke should appear to be caused by it, immediately turn off the power switch, disconnect the adaptor plug from the outlet, and have the instrument inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel. • Use the specified adaptor (PA-3C or PA-3B or an equivalent recommended by Yamaha) only. Using the wrong adaptor can result in damage to the instrument or overheating. • Before cleaning the instrument, always remove the electric plug from the outlet. Never insert or remove an electric plug with wet hands. • Check the electric plug periodically and remove any dirt or dust which may have accumulated on it. • Do not put burning items, such as candles, on the unit. A burning item may fall over and cause a fire.

CAUTION
Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of physical injury to you or others, or damage to the instrument or other property. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:
• Do not place the AC adaptor cord near heat sources such as heaters or radiators, and do not excessively bend or otherwise damage the cord, place heavy objects on it, or place it in a position where anyone could walk on, trip over, or roll anything over it. • When removing the electric plug from the instrument or an outlet, always hold the plug itself and not the cord. • Do not connect the instrument to an electrical outlet using a multiple-connector. Doing so can result in lower sound quality, or possibly cause overheating in the outlet. • Unplug the AC power adaptor when not using the instrument, or during electrical storms. • Always make sure all batteries are inserted in conformity with the +/polarity markings. Failure to do so might result in overheating, fire, or battery fluid leakage. • Always replace all batteries at the same time. Do not use new batteries together with old ones. Also, do not mix battery types, such as alkaline batteries with manganese batteries, or batteries from different makers, or different types of batteries from the same maker, since this can cause overheating, fire, or battery fluid leakage. • Do not dispose of batteries in fire. • Do not attempt to recharge batteries that are not intended to be charged. • When the batteries run out, or if the instrument is not to be used for a long time, remove the batteries from the instrument to prevent possible leakage of the battery fluid. • Keep batteries away from children. • If the batteries do leak, avoid contact with the leaked fluid. If the battery fluid should come in contact with your eyes, mouth, or skin, wash immediately with water and consult a doctor. Battery fluid is corrosive and may possibly cause loss of sight or chemical burns. • Before connecting the instrument to other electronic components, turn off the power for all components. Before turning the power on or off for all components, set all volume levels to minimum. Also, be sure to set the volumes of all components at their minimum levels and gradually raise the volume controls while playing the instrument to set the desired listening level.
(4)-7

• Do not expose the instrument to excessive dust or vibrations, or extreme cold or heat (such as in direct sunlight, near a heater, or in a car during the day) to prevent the possibility of panel disfiguration or damage to the internal components. • Do not use the instrument near other electrical products such as televisions, radios, or speakers, since this might cause interference which can affect proper operation of the other products. • Do not place the instrument in an unstable position where it might accidentally fall over. • Before moving the instrument, remove all connected adaptor and other cables. • When cleaning the instrument, use a soft, dry cloth. Do not use paint thinners, solvents, cleaning fluids, or chemical-impregnated wiping cloths. Also, do not place vinyl, plastic or rubber objects on the instrument, since this might discolor the panel or keyboard. • Do not rest your weight on, or place heavy objects on the instrument, and do not use excessive force on the buttons, switches or connectors. • Use only the stand specified for the instrument. When attaching the stand or rack, use the provided screws only. Failure to do so could cause damage to the internal components or result in the instrument falling over. • Do not operate the instrument for a long period of time at a high or uncomfortable volume level, since this can cause permanent hearing loss. If you experience any hearing loss or ringing in the ears, consult a physician.

Yamaha cannot be held responsible for damage caused by improper use or modifications to the instrument, or data that is lost or destroyed. Always turn the power off when the instrument is not in use. Make sure to discard used batteries according to local regulations. * The illustrations and LCD screens as shown in this owner’s manual are for instructional purposes only, and may be different from the ones on your instrument.

Setting Up
This section contains information about setting up your PSR-175/172 for playing. Make sure to read this section carefully before using the instrument.

Power Requirements
Although the PSR-175/172 will run either from an optional AC adaptor or batteries, Yamaha recommends use of an AC adaptor whenever possible. An AC adaptor is more environmentally friendly than batteries and does not deplete resources.

I Using an AC Power Adaptor • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
To connect your PSR-175/172 to a wall socket, you will need the optionally available Yamaha PA-3C or PA-3B Power Adaptor. Use of other AC adaptors could result in damage to the instrument, so be sure to ask for the right kind. Make sure that the [STANDBY/ON] switch of the PSR-175/172 is set to STANDBY. Connect one end of the adaptor to the DC IN 12V jack on the rear panel of your PSR-175/172, and the other end to a suitable electrical outlet.
• Use ONLY a Yamaha PA-3C or PA-3B AC Power Adaptor (or other adaptor specifically recommended by Yamaha) to power your instrument from the AC mains. The use of other adaptors may result in irreparable damage to both the adaptor and the PSR-175/172. • Unplug the AC Power Adaptor when not using the PSR-175/ 172, or during electrical storms.

I Using Batteries • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
G Inserting Batteries Turn the instrument upside-down and remove the battery compartment lid. Insert six 1.5-volt “D” size, R20P (LR20) or equivalent batteries as shown in the illustration, making sure that the positive and negative terminals are properly aligned, and replace the lid.
• Never mix old and new batteries or different types of batteries (e.g., alkaline and manganese). • To prevent possible damage from battery leakage, remove the batteries from the instrument if it is not to be used for a long time.

G When the Batteries Run Down When the batteries run low and the battery voltage drops below a certain level, the PSR-175/172 may not sound or function properly. As soon as this happens, replace them with a complete set of six new batteries.

Turning On the Power
With the AC power adaptor connected or with batteries installed, simply move the STANDBY switch until it is set to the ON position. When the instrument is not in use, be sure to turn the power off.
• Even when the switch is in the “STANDBY” position, electricity is still flowing to the instrument at the minimum level. When you are not using the PSR-175/172 for a long time, make sure you unplug the AC power adaptor from the wall AC outlet, and/or remove the batteries from the instrument.

Setting Up

Accessory Jacks
I Using Headphones• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
For private practicing and playing without disturbing others, connect a set of stereo headphones to the rear panel PHONES/OUTPUT jack. Sound from the builtin speaker system is automatically cut off when you insert a headphone plug into this jack.

I Connecting a Keyboard Amplifier or Stereo System • • • • • • •
Though the PSR-175/172 is equipped with a built-in speaker system, you can also play it through an external amplifier/speaker system. First, make sure the PSR175/172 and any external devices are turned off, then connect one end of a stereo audio cable to the LINE IN or AUX IN jack(s) of the other device and the other end to the rear panel PHONES/OUTPUT jack on the PSR-175/172.

• To prevent damage to the speakers, set the volume of the external devices at the minimum setting before connecting them. Failure to observe these cautions may result in electric shock or equipment damage. Also, be sure to set the volumes of all devices at their minimum levels and gradually raise the volume controls while playing the instrument to set the desired listening level.

I Using a Sustain Footswitch • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
This feature lets you use an optional footswitch (Yamaha FC4 or FC5) to sustain the sound of the keyboard voice. This is used in the same way as a damper pedal on an acoustic piano — press and hold down the footswitch as you play the keyboard to sustain the sound.

• Make sure that the footswitch plug is properly connected to the SUSTAIN jack before turning on the power. • Do not press the footswitch while turning the power on. Doing this changes the recognized polarity of the footswitch, resulting in reversed footswitch operation.

I Using the MIDI Terminals • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
The PSR-175/172 also features MIDI terminals, allowing you to interface the PSR-175/172 with other MIDI instruments and devices. (For more information, see page 52.)

Make sure that the Accompaniment Volume (page 47) is set to an appropriate level. the keys in the right hand section are used only for entering the chord root and type. the display shows the specific notes of the chords you play in the auto accompaniment section of the keyboard. even when pressing the [ACCOMPANIMENT ON/OFF] button. noise is produced.Troubleshooting Problem When the PSR-175/172 is turned on or off. turn off the mobile phone or use it further away from the PSR-175/172. Not all notes are heard when playing a number of notes simultaneously. 53 . When auto accompaniment is on. the actual sound of the voice may be slightly different from note to note. If you play a single finger chord. The accompaniment of the style can only be heard when accompaniment is set to ON and keys are played in the auto accompaniment section of the keyboard. Press the [STYLE] button to enable style operations. Using a mobile phone in close proximity to the PSR-175/172 may produce interference. The battery power is too low. When using the Dictionary function (page 41). Possible Cause and Solution This is normal and indicates that the PSR-175/172 is receiving electrical power. When playing back one of the Pianist styles (#081 #100). The Pianist styles have no drums or bass — only piano accompaniment. The AWM tone generation method uses multiple recordings (samples) of an instrument across the range of the keyboard. The notes shown in the music staves and keyboard diagram in the display do not match the keys actually played. Make sure the Style mode is active before using the auto accompaniment. the rhythm cannot be heard. The Multi Pad sound is cut off or sounds unusual. To prevent this. no sound is output. The sound of the voices or rhythms seems unusual or strange. thus. Replace the batteries. some notes/sounds of the Multi Pad may be omitted (or “stolen”) from the accompaniment or song. The PSR-175/172 is polyphonic up to a maximum of 16 notes. The sound of the voice changes from note to note. When a set of headphones is plugged into this jack. Too many keys are pressed at the same time. This is normal. The PSR-175/172 is polyphonic up to a maximum of 16 notes. a popping sound is temporarily produced.
